With Ruud out, there are now no top 10 players left in the Tokyo draw. Something is wrong with Casper


jsnoodles

Greece needs a tournament. ATP for Stef, wta for Maria, something.


disfadbidge007

It's prolly the yakuza. They don't want Ruud, ADM, ADF winning.


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Uhhhhhh Ok


nicoc9

Ruud not wanting to miss the birth of Rafa’s baby 🥹 True love.


nicoc9

Ruud’s movement definitely hampered… hip injury maybe?


_trinitrotoluen

Think he's just mentally and physically exhausted


nicoc9

Absolutely. He spreads himself very thin. And now he’s doing that South American tour with Nadal in November, then playing Mubadala with Alcaraz… in Dec.. He’s “Casper Everywhere”


jsnoodles

Casper wants to be like Rafa so much he’s just not going to win anything past the US Open.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

Ruud has lost to guys like Peniston, Shelton etc this year. Even if he loses this, it wouldn't be that uncharacteristic a loss for him.


cdddr

I think this loss is a bit different. The loss against Peniston was on grass. And the loss against Shelton on a fast hardcourt, right after going deep in Canada Open. This matchup and court however should have suited Ruud well.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

What about losing to Lajovic on clay? I just think he's prone to bad losses, he's just not that consistent throughout the year.


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Penis Town


_trinitrotoluen

Casper needs a vacation


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

WTF Munar!


Koalos

who else is keen to see king kygs in action tonight🔥🔥


_Crazy_Asian_

no thanks


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

I can't believe Ruud is allowing Munar of all people to serve and volley against him


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Casper not breaking there is actually a statistical anomaly


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Sigh


cdddr

Looks like Casper should have taken some proper time off after Laver Cup (or even US Open). A shame, because this court should suit him well.


chris_aslan

The back of Stef’s shirt is fckin ugly


inlettersneversent

what I really want to know is why Casper implodes when he has to play Spaniards


_Crazy_Asian_

Everything seems so off with Casper, especially the timing of hitting the ball, looks so slow to react today


nicoc9

Is Ruud unwell? Very uncharacteristic performance. Still expecting him to bounce back…


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Maybe he had a bad batch of temaki?


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

This is certainly a match of tennis if there’s ever been one


inlettersneversent

Casper…… gorl


Imanothermuser

Ruud just wants to go walk around Tokyo while listening to the Lost In Translation soundtrack and we can´t blame him.


Plane_Highlight3080

Apparently the ball doesn’t bounce as high on these courts but then again it’s not like Munar is a hard court specialist himself lol.


Imanothermuser

Indeed. Three break points with an easy volley to finish off on the very first one and leaves it at the net. Just one of those days I guess.


Earnmuse_is_amanrag

The Tokyo court is literally playing like clay. Ruud still struggling somehow.


CoaxHoax

Losing to munar on hard is impressive tbh


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Casper about to fall to his knees and sob on the court upon hearing an Avicii song and he’s forced to retire the match


jsnoodles

Kukushkin stop hitting it to his forehand ffs.


jlwkww

Casper needs a vacay. He said to Norwegian media he is looking forward to travel around in Japan after the tournament with his girlfriend and eat some good japanese food etc, his mind is not at the court I guess


inlettersneversent

Shania Twain would not be impressed


cib_vk228

tears in my eyes the vulture is getting exposed.


shegotofftheplane

Someone tell Casper this is a 250


shegotofftheplane

Ruud-Munar is a parking lot match 😬 maybe it’s the pressure or time difference but Casper looks awful


RubbleWestbrick

Man this would be a incredibly bad loss considering Munar has a pretty bad record on hard courts and Ruud just made a Slam final on one


jsnoodles

Anyway friendship with Casper Ruud over, I saw Stef with a slight stubble the other day so I’m back on that stupid train.


jsnoodles

I love ADF because he’s just a chaotic king. Is he going to lose to some guy who’s never played tennis before? Will he beat Djokovic and win Wimbledon? No one knows, especially him!


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

The seagulls squawking in the background of the Ruud Munar match is a nice and serene touch of ambience


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

If Casper doesn’t win in 3 I won’t hesitate to compromise my own life


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Well folks it’s been a good run


shegotofftheplane

ADF losing in straights to a 100+ ranked player, Ruud a set down to clay court specialist Munar, ADM losing to Kwon, I love the chaos


inlettersneversent

meanwhile 500 king BWEH still alive 😈


disfadbidge007

Every other seeded player getting ousted. What is going on today lol.


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Casper in 3..? Please


jsnoodles

I’m so mad at Casper rn


Iwin2904

Casper playing a bit better toward the end of the set, but I really hope he starts making it worth it for me to get up early to watch this


[deleted]

[удалено]


jsnoodles

This would be more credible if ADF didn’t have completely wild results all the time.


inlettersneversent

ok JAAAAAsper Ruud 🤡 it’s been fun but now we want to see Casper Ruud world #3 and us open finalist ok?


legohotwing

Losing to Munar on a hard court would be embarrassing for the second ranked player in the world


shegotofftheplane

Technically third but yes, quite bad


shegotofftheplane

This is the worst I’ve seen Ruud play wow, just spraying errors everywhere


Plane_Highlight3080

He’s been up and down this season but the great runs at the FO Ane US open somewhat erased the memory of his bad matches especially in the early clay season (not going to even mention grass).


cdddr

Worst 20 min of tennis I've ever seen from Ruud, his timing seems to be slightly off on almost every shot he attempts.


gothgirl91

two australians out in a row in Tokyo...


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Foot fault☠️


UnorthodoxViking

Who?


shegotofftheplane

Coric is left handed too? Sharapova, Badosa, Tommy Paul, Coric and many more…should’ve played with their left hand


RubbleWestbrick

I wouldn't be surprised at all if he is It's clear he feels more comfortable on his backhand than forehand


shegotofftheplane

He was signing balls with his left hand


RubbleWestbrick

Coric beats Kokkinakis


felinechromosome

{SERIOUS] How old is too old to have a dangly cross earing?


gothgirl91

NEVER


RubbleWestbrick

Novak with the 4 seed seems super weird lol I basically only associate him with #1 and #3 seeds over his career and like random low seeds in 2017 and 2018


34TH_ST_BROADWAY

The [image quality of the Japan Open highlights is so good.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2fUD5QzeQ4) I'm guessing the tournaments themselves sort of put together these videos on site with a produce, then upload them to Tennis TV who posts them on their site. Not sure why the compression quality is so good here, but maybe Tennis TV can send out a memo and tell other tournaments to follow the same specifications. Some other tournaments look like garbage for some reason and there's really no reason it has to be that way. What's up with Mannarinno's outfit? Did he lose his sponsor? Looked like he bought his kit at TJ Maxx.


naffion

Yep, he lost his sponsorship with Hydrogen since the beginning of the year.


ExcuseYou-What

Oh man, if Borna embraced his inner Benoit beard, that would be a spectacle. I kinda wanna see it manifest.


JetsLag

Kwon beats de Minaur 6-3, 6-2!


34TH_ST_BROADWAY

Damn, that's a good win. And by a convincing score.


Iammadatcha

Yes!!!


Parisny

Very glad to see Kwon getting over his disappointing defeat to Brooksby at the Korea Open last week


disfadbidge007

ADM wtf man.


jsnoodles

OSTRAVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AlliterateAlso

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


DecimatedByCats

Ben Shelton down a set in his opening match at Tiburon Challenger. Up a break in the second set but Quiroz is not making it easy for Shelton.

Am I the only one who isn't getting the Astana Open scores on Google?


Districoftrees

Try out the TNNS Live app, easy to track both atp and wta scores


Benno1977

Thanks for the suggestion. It's a great app.


bloobidybloop

It's been bugging me too


RubbleWestbrick

Thanks! That's insanely hard to find for some reason lol


inlettersneversent

same here for Astana… Tokyo and Ostrava are working fine for me though


ALifeAsAGhost

https://mobile.twitter.com/maisonpq/status/1577012357896712192 So Meddy was actually invited to the Laver cup but the government basically said it wouldn’t work?? And I thought this government couldn’t get any worse ffs


jsnoodles

And we could’ve had Stefaniil doubles and we didn’t????


jsnoodles

Stef playing at 6pm my time? I love you Asian swing.


jsnoodles

Someone was worried about RBA dropping out of the top 20 yesterday so he immediately beats a top 15 player and jumps back in.


AlliterateAlso

He’s a very considerate man.


jsnoodles

Gotta work for that horse feed.


manga_be

Felix is capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares


lo0ilo0ilo0i

Jill Teichmann is looking very tight, man.


mastershake714

Not sure if Martincová’s comeback is due more to her own skill or to Teichmann faltering, but I’m loving it all the same. Hope we get three sets 🤞


[deleted]

Teichmann choking is the most predictable thing possible. All the players who get talked of having bad mental, she might be the worst. Shame since I like her Kvitova style game.


mastershake714

And Martincova thwarts Teichmann from taking a trip to the bakery this set.


spankyourkopita

Looking forward to see how Emma does against Kasitkana. Won't hold it against her if she loses. Her opponent looks tough.


cbdgf

Daria either goes to the finals or loses first round it feels so this is a game could be a bit of a tossup


Miss_Medussa

Tommy Paul


[deleted]

Tommy Fucking Paul


cbdgf

Keep it up Petra you got this. What a furious comeback down a break early to now lead 3-2 with 2 breaks


iconisanimi

Bweh, baby!!! Also Felix IDEK, man 🤷‍♀️ EDIT. WHAT is this photo of Jannik godDAMN https://www.instagram.com/p/CjP9S1pMt9z/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=


caegrc

Dayum.. i have a lot of questions for that photo. Still, holy moly saturation!


cbdgf

Bit of a a scare for Petra there but she came through in the end


Mysonking

I AM SAD FOR STAN !


Nabucodonosor89

15 year-old russian Mirra Andreeva (Erika's younger sister) got a WC for the WTA in Tunisia. She will play Potapova tomorrow. Mirra Andreeva and Brenda Fruhvirtova are the only 15 year-olds in the top 700. Mirra is currently ranked #422.


Equidae2

Happy happy for Kreji, first singles W for a long time I think.climbing her way back up.


anujbeatles

C'mon Petra, I just wanted to see a bAGEL at the AGEL open


[deleted]

Are you tired of ball mashing tennis??? Well too fucking bad because we got the OG coming up.


mastershake714

Very happy for Rybakina. Keys has been playing some solid tennis this season, so this is a nice win. Hopefully an indicator of good things to come this tourney.


aweap

Especially since Keys beat her twice this year...


obi_kennawobi

What a weird question, "Where do you keep your Wimbledon trophy?" What answer does he expect? "In the car"?


Stock-Improvement610

It's a fairly commonly asked questioned to champions of all sports.


obi_kennawobi

I know, and it's dumb every single time.


White_Nothing

Tough first round match up for both. Glad to see Elena turn the match around after the first set. Good win for her.


[deleted]

These "luxury" seats at Ostrava are so stupid. Barely any people in them and it takes up so much space that on the broadcast the arena looks completely empty when there's plenty of fans above them.


legohotwing

“oh my gooodnesss” - cici bellis after every semi-entertaining point


cbdgf

God that was a messy 3rd set. Happy Elena turned it around though


[deleted]

3rd MP saved and counting. Elena come on!


deucemckenzie

Wow, Keys and Rybakina are playing some stunning old fashioned bash ball right now


Soliloqui333

Keys is rough to watch. She can be up 40-0 in her own serve, just to commit 5 unforced in a row with not a single ball close to the court.


DanaiDampa

Rublev stayed on court for 30 MINUTES to sign for every living soul out there, champion behaviour


jsnoodles

Rublev and Stef are the elite sign for everyone players.


Psychological_Bug676

He’s such a sweetheart


[deleted]

He does it after losses too. I'll always root for him because of it. So many stars don't give a shit and just walks past 10 kids holding out a ball.


[deleted]

Why did Keys stare down Elena just now? Didn't watch the point.


obi_kennawobi

I didn't pay full attention but there was a bad overrule by the umpire and she looked at the service box corner.


knickgooner10

How comes Fritz withdrew from Seoul but is playing Tokyo? Swear he was injured/ill


lefthill

Uff that was painful for keys, 40-15, third break attempt from deuce, and loses it


Psychological_Bug676

Andrey’s vibes today were 🤌✨


[deleted]

Rybakina needs to hire some #600 rank male player to play a full set with her before every match. Feels like every match she starts off sluggish then wakes up by the second set.


BelgianBond

I don't know if that's going to help when her motivation issues seem to be the root of her fluctuations in form. It was claimed post-Wimbledon that she'd been considering retirement earlier in the season.


[deleted]

Kinda funny both Kazhakstan #1s don't seem to have real passion for tennis.


gothgirl91

Bublik's new interview pretty much sums up on why he doesnt because he forced by his father to play tennis to begin with


[deleted]

Yea I thought it was super interesting that he doesn't resent his father for it either. He believes it's the parents responsiblity to push their children towards things they're good at.


lefthill

Didn’t know Cici was commentating this match


mastershake714

I love the three exclamation points in “Ostrava!!!” at both ends of the court.


JoeshpMR

There are more people on the court than there are spectators for the Ostrava doubles.


gothgirl91

BWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH!


Unaatennista

That didn’t feel like an Andrey match


DanaiDampa

It’s always shocking when Andrey wins easily these days 😅🙈


White_Nothing

BWEH!


Unaatennista

What is going on?


dunkerpup

It’s out! It’s in! We don’t actually know so let’s just say it’s in!


Strange_Armadillo_63

What happened there?


Unaatennista

I think Rublev’s serve was called out Rublev challenged and the video replay showed out but the umpire said it was in and then they replayed the point and Djere said the serve wasn’t even close to the line.


[deleted]

Lol the announcer is going full [this tweet](https://twitter.com/_troyjohnson/status/1442556251120889860?s=20&t=3lJ6Gh2zQ_NCEm2q0MaEOA) on Keys. "Her best days are behind her but..." "Still showing what she can do at the age of 27"


naffion

100% first serve won by Andrey in the 1st set.


OddsTipsAndPicks

This is only the third time Rublev has played Djere this year!? I thought that number was someone more like five.


gothgirl91

maybe because that US open match felt like 5 matches and not 5 sets


OddsTipsAndPicks

Lol this is quite possible I’ve apparently somehow consumed Djere with Kwon who has played him four times.


gothgirl91

yeah he's played a few this year on repeat. Kwon - 4. Sinner - 3. Djere - 3. Evans - 3. FAA/Hurkacz/Fritz/Cilic/Tiafoe/Draper/Fognini/ - 2.


Theferael_me

I feel sorry for Djere. Despite all his talent he just hasn't got the psychological fortitude when it matters. It happens again and again and again. Maybe he needs a better sports psychologist.


PigsLiveOakland

He likely doesn’t have a sports psych at all


Unaatennista

Andrey!!


Unaatennista

Is Berretini injured?


gothgirl91

he's just not playing


Unaatennista

I’m not going to get a lot of sleep this week lol


Glittering_Tea3547

Looking at Astana draws a potential RBA v Med QF 👀


Fried_falafel

Let’s hope Med won’t get kicked out before that…


gothgirl91

oh i've missed bweh


Unaatennista

Andrey is serving well hope he can keep this up


gothgirl91

YOU JINXED HIM


Unaatennista

Sorry 😭


jobregv

Is it local time in the ATP Tour page? Does anyone know? It doesn’t really match spanish time and Im kind of lost


cc0011

Local time yep


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

I wake up to see that Cerundolo has lost in the first round once again. Sigh


ALifeAsAGhost

223kmh (138.5mph) serve from Rublev! Edit-now just done a 227kmh one!


Unaatennista

Why did Rune pull out of Astana?


The_Entheogenist

His mom put him in time-out for a week.


gothgirl91

comms in andrey's match just said officially withdrawn for "right knee injury"


gothgirl91

he was cramping a lot in sofia, maybe that's why


caegrc

Strong start from bweh


m00nrake

I love the ball boy nodding his head in approval to Elena’s first return of serve :P


IcyOrdinary1

FAA might have cost himself a spot on the ATP tour finals with that loss. Really tough draw, prob would have beaten any other opponent in 1R.


shegotofftheplane

We say that every tournament for him


caegrc

Jannik should take a leaf out of Andrey’s book “how to colour coordinate for ginger”


RA1N30W

both of them should wear green


gothgirl91

they did during clay season and they looked great in the dark green


gothgirl91

i find it endearing jannik clashes his colors


thebullshitrussian

I refuse to believe Rybakina is only 184cm tall. Just no


dunkerpup

Andrey ❤️


Psychological_Bug676

I’ve missed Andrey so much and I know I will regret this statement in the next 10 minutes


DanaiDampa

Djere first round tho 😭
